How did they make you change your world view?

How did they make you change your world view?


The Dark Knight/Batman Begins taught me that "It's not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you," meaning feelings, thoughts and beliefs are useless if you're not gonna do anything with them.This led me to/made me ask a question " Do you care about starving children in Africa/homeless people?" and I at first answered yes. Then The next question was "What are you doing to help/solve the problem?" and I realized that I did nothing. Not volunteer, not donate money and not even raise awareness of the problem. This meant that I did not care all that much, if at all. I was deluding myself into thinking I cared about something and realized you could substitute starving children/ homeless people with anything and ask that second question. Then you would learn a lot about yourself and the things you actually cared about, which might not amount to much. The joker, who I love, taught me to look at the world objectively, which leads me to the next movie...


Watchmen - Don't even ask me how, but Rorschach taught me that Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It’s us. Only us. It got me into Existentialism, Nihilism, Objectivism and philosophy in general. It set me on a path that began to shape my beliefs. I abandoned old ideals and began to search for truth. Reality over delusion. Ozymandias and the joker taught me that if they can't stop you physically, you can get away with almost anything. That you can reach a point where old "rules" no longer apply to you, that you can grow beyond them. I could go on for hours about these to movies.

Finally, cause I don't want to go on forever, I'll keep it short Fight Club taught me a lot too, but mostly, "to let that which does not matter... truly slide"

You could try "Children Who Chase Lost Voices." Also known as "Journey To Agartha." Sadly not on Crunchyroll though. You'll have to sniff around the net a bit.

Blazing Saddles
A Clockwork Orange
The Seventh Seal
Eraserhead
Everything is Illuminated
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
All About Eve
Little Miss Sunshine
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
Santa Sangre
Stop Making Sense
Cool Hand Luke
House of Flying Daggers
Evil Dead trilogy

I think The Princess Bride a pretty terrific.
I also like the movie Wonder Boys.
Of course, there's Blade Runner.
And the Star Wars movies. All of them. Even the ones that aren't all that great. (You don't really need to see the Clone Wars one, but... why not?)

I did too actually.

Of course, I liked Batman and Robin... it was wonderfully campy.

Paprika by Satoshi Kon really hit home for me. I'd say that for many people, and anyone who is like me, it is certainly a must watch.

Up and the Incredibles.

- The Incredibles if you like superheroes and family and Pixar. It's finally getting a sequel next year!

- And Up if you want to cry at the beginning.
